what is the best type of camera to take on an animal safari?

Having experienced a safari personally I was struck by the fact that I was the only person...amongst sixteen of us...that had binoculars. The rest of the group carried cameras of various sizes. The upshot was that my binoculars were in demand as I was able to focus on the unfolding vital dramatic moments of the safari much quicker than the owners of the cameras who, by the time they has focussed and set their settings to capture what I had witnessed, the moment had passed. Hence my question! Perhaps another consideration would be to possess a camera/binocular combination. Can anybody make suggestions on the ideal camera for this sort of activity and if their is a benefit in using a camera/binocular for the same purpose? Thanks, opticfortravel.
